There are several locations in Riley County and Pottawatomie County for residents and businesses in the flood prone areas can get up to 15 sandbags.
- 6215 Tuttle Creek Blvd between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. M-F. (unfilled bags with sand on site)
- Pottawatomie County sandbag filling station is closed at this time and will publish when it opens again.
- Incorporated areas contact the municipality for sandbags.
- Unincorporated areas: Public Works Yard in Westmoreland 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. M-F
Hardware stores also sell sandbags, but may have a limited supply of bags. Sand is still available at local outlets.
Emergency Managers recommend these sandbags be used to temporarily block doors, garage doors and window wells. We do not recommend building sandbag walls. Sandbags should be used to delay small amounts of water while belongings are being removed. Sandbags do not keep standing or rising water out for an extended time and even with short term use, may require some kind of trash/water pump.
